NCC Education is delighted to announce its progression route agreement with Unitec Institute of Technology.
Students who have successfully completed the NCC Education Level 4 Diploma in Computing (L4DC) and Level 5 Diploma in Computing (L5DC) will have guaranteed entry onto the third year of the Bachelor of Computing Systems at Unitec. *
Across its two campuses in Auckland, the institution adopts modern training approaches to prepare students for professional employment.
A crucial part of what makes Unitec different is its connection with industry employers. Unitec’s School of Computing and IT actively engage with over 60 businesses in New Zealand which results in a number of internship and scholarship opportunities offered to students while they are studying towards their qualification, as well as upon completing it.
Throughout the degree, Bachelor of Computing Systems students will be taught in an applied learning environment by academic leaders in the fields of cybersecurity, software engineering and business intelligence and analysis.
In the final semester, Bachelor of Computing students enrol into a Capstone project where they can choose to work on industry-related projects, with an internal Unitec department or explore further research opportunities by working with Unitec’s leading research-active staff.
At least 50% of Unitec’s Capstone project students (final semester project) undertake this project as part of an industry placement (includes Unitec internal placements and external placements such as IBM, Kordia etc.).
Additionally, throughout the year, the School organises a number of events (Unitec Computing Connect, Hackathon) which help students further engage with industry, as well as demonstrate the skills and knowledge gained while studying at Unitec.
The institution features a highly accommodating environment, with more than 12,000 students from over 80 countries. The international experience at Unitec is second to none.
The institution offers a wide range of student services to ensure all learners have positive campus experiences, ranging from academic support, counseling services, to fitness and more.
Partnerships Manager Dermot Finnigan at NCC Education says: “I’m delighted to be able to announce a new partnership between NCC Education and Unitec Institute of Technology.
“Unitec’s Bachelor of Computing Systems degree offers students high-quality employment-focused training to ensure that they are well-prepared for the global job market of the future.”
Head of School – Computing and Information Technology Nick Sheppard at Unitec, says: “It’s great to be working alongside an education provider which is passionate about giving its students the opportunity to further their education, improve their employment outcomes and better serve their communities.
“We’re confident that NCC Education students will be well-equipped for studies here at Unitec and we look forward to welcoming them into the Unitec whānau.”
*Students who have completed the NCC Education L5DC, but the level 4 qualification elsewhere will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
*All international students must meet the English language proficiency requirements to be considered for admission.
